    Hampden Keywind Pocket Watch

    Is it nickel plated or gilded? This sounds like a private label contract watch made by Hampden - or possibly its predecessor, the New York Watch Company (then a dial switch). A photo of the movement would help place it.

    NAWCC Watch Sales?

    I found this page in the NAWCC Gift Shop. Last I heard, you could not buy new Hamiltons through a web site shopping cart. Most of the internet dealers that do carry the Hamiltons would have the buyer call in the order to get around this. Anyway, this is in the NAWCC Gift Shop online - does...

    Biggest problem with eBay - How do YOU deal with it?

    My biggest problem with eBay is that you cannot leave a negative feedback under ANY circumstances. The most recent is the Tremont I purchased from a seller in Arizona. It was not as described. After the seller saying they couldn't do anything about it, I filed a claim with Paypal. The...

    I have a Sessions clock that is stamped "model W 60 cycle 2 watt" on the back. If I plug it it it doesn't work. If I spin the rotor by hand I can get the sweep seconds hand to work. Also, I can set the hands. Does this mean the motor is shot? Any chance of finding a replacement? At this...
